Beautiful large painting signed Edwin Lord Weeks. American Artist. I believe is dated 1877 Oil oil canvas . The painting is of Alhambra Grenada Spain with Sierra Nevada mountains in the background. It measures 28"x24" . Recently cleaned and re-varnished .
Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
This painting is atypical of the majority of Weeks' works, which tend to depict Orientalist / desert scenes. In the current market, buyers often prefer 'typical' works to 'atypical' works so I have been conservative with my valuation.
Based on the photographs and information provided, and subject to examination, this is:
